The librarian's report showed that the usual periodicals had been received, together with some additional periodicals and pamphlets.

Professor Whittaker paid a tribute to the memory of the late Dr Cargill Gilston Knott and to the work he had done for the society. The following resolution was adopted:

"That this Society has learned with the deepest sorrow of the great loss sustained by the Scientific world throughout the death of Dr Cargill Gilston Knott, one of the original members of this Society and its first secretary; the members desire to place on the record their warm appreciation of his worth and work."

Professor Whittaker also referred to the death of the late Baillie William Finlayson, an old and valued member of the Society.
